Tabor grew up in Vienna (his father was a military musician) and learned the drums and later the trumpet during an apprenticeship as a mechanic. He had various engagements at home and abroad and finally moved to Munich, where he performed in the Reginapalast. From Munich he went on numerous foreign tours with large dance orchestras, such as Bernard Etté or Will Glahé, but also with Teddy Stauffer. At times he played jazz music in Lutz Templin's orchestra and was then a member of Templin's Charlie and His Orchestra, a big band put together for Nazi propaganda purposes, until he was drafted into military service in 1941. From 1941 to 1944 he played in officers' messes and military hospitals on the Russian front.Source and more info
